Thousands of women gathered in downtown Nashville Saturday morning for the running of the Women's Half-Marathon and 5K race. This was the fourth year in a row the event has been held in Music City.
"[The race] is really meant to be about a very unintimidating environment for women to get together, to be fit together, to support each other and mentor each other, " said Women's Running Series General Manager Dana Allen.
"What better city than Nashville - the Music City - where you can come with your girlfriends get a great run in on a Saturday morning and also have a lot of fun," Allen said.
The race was a fundraiser for the Cohen's and Colitis Foundation of America. More than 3,500 runners were expected to participate, including country music recording artist Whitney Duncan.
"I'm out here raising awareness for my missing cousin, Holly Bobo," Duncan said.
Bobo has been missing since April 2011. She was last seen outside her Decatur County home with a man who was leading her into the woods.
"As a family, not knowing is just an absolute nightmare," Duncan said. "So we just want everybody to keep her in their prayers."
Duncan told Channel 4 News that her family, with help from search and rescue crews, continues to search for Bobo every weekend.
There is a $250,000 reward for Bobo's safe return.
